Q. The SEO SEF settings Joomla Global configuration are set to Yes but my links do not work. Why not ?

 

A. Your .htaccess file is not configured correctly or you have not renamed the htaccess.txt file.

(please note that Cache must be No in Joomla Global Configuration, System to see changes immediately).

Solution: 

 

 

    1. Rename the htaccess.txt file to .htaccess if you have not already done so and test the links on your site.
